    Brandon calls BYU's offensive plays and, as a 2nd year Offensive Coordinator, he still has a lot to learn. It means some growing pains, but, hopefully, he's learning and BYU's offense will be much improved as the season progresses and in years to come.

    The biggest improvement from Utah and Boise State to Hawaii, wasn't BYU's choice of running backs, or Hawaii's defense, it was the marked improvement in BYU's offensive line.

    For some reason Bronco gets too fixated on certain players. Alisa was one during the BSU game. Williams only touched the ball once, but gained 6 yards. Instead of trying Williams again, Bronco went back to Alisa, who was only gaining 2 ypc. Same thing with Nelson, who couldn't sustain a drive and had to throw 3 interceptions before he was pulled out.

    I can understand sticking to your game plan, but when your game plan isn't working you need to adjust quickly, not wait until the last minute and pray for a miracle.

    All you need to know about offensive players is if they field punts in practice.

    Based on their game performances (yes, Hawaii is not very stiff competition) I don't understand why Mendenhall isn't more positive on Hill and Williams.They must really be stinking it up in practice. Either that or he's really trying to tone down expectations so he doesn't have another player get as much hype as Heaps did. All I know is his comments to the media the past week really have me wondering about either his ability to evaluate offensive personnel or his ability to avoid playing favorites.

    My word, Coach Bronco. You're team just had a win, show a littl enthusiasm. I nearly fell asleep listening to the head coach of our Cougs talk about his players. Egads.

    Williams needs to play. All the running backs seem to be doing well, but Williams is fast and awesome. He isn't getting the praise he deserves.
